About the webinar

Capacity Australia, supported by senior UN representatives, international senior human rights colleagues and senior health and aged care professionals will bring you a live debate on the need and relevance of Nursing Homes in society. The systemic, political and human failures in the aged care sector have been laid bare during the COVID crisis at an international level. In Australia we are also in the midst of a Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety and this debate is timely as we navigate the economic, health and human rights issues surrounding aged care.
